i'm anthony mason. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. here a few of the stories we're looking at on cbs "this morning saturday." a very taxing day for the romney campaign. ann romney has a scare in the air. her husband decides to release his 2011 returns. we'll look inside the numbers as early voting begins in the 2012 presidential campaign. >> mauling at the famed bronx zoo. a man leaps from a monorail into the tiger's cage. only quick action by zoo keepers may have saved his life. >> rarely do you get to see a random act of guidance. we'll tell you one by a canadian bus driver that left his passengers in tears. ♪ fly me to the moon
5:01 am
>> a living legend in the sky. the nation's longest serving flight attendant, served celebrities and presidents in a career that lasted more than 60 years. he'll tell us what it was like to fly so many miles that he could have gone to the moon back 40 times over. all that and so much more on cbs "this morning saturday," september 22, 2012. >> good morning, welcome to the weekend. nice to be with you. >> great to see you. we want to begin this morning with a scare on the campaign trail for mitt romney's wife ann. her plane was forced to make an emergency landing in denver on friday after the pilots discovered that the cabinet was filling with smoke apparently from an electrical fire. firefighters and police were then there when the plane touched down. no injuries were reported. >> mrs. romney and her husband
5:02 am
made good on a previous campaign promise friday. they released their 2011 tax returns. january crawfo jan crawford has the numbers. >> reporter: good morning. democrats have been making an issue out of romney's taxes since january when he released his 2012 returns in a preliminary estimate of his 2011 returns. democrats have been saying he should release more years of returns than that. romney is saying that's it. he points to the fact that john mccain only released two years when he ran four years ago. romney did provide a little more information yesterday to try to counter his critics. the 2011 returns totalled nearly 400 pages and showed what everyone knows. romney is rich and he pay as lot of taxes. romney made $13.7 million last year, almost all of it from investments. he paid $1.9 in federal taxes. romney gave a lot to charity. $4 million last year or nearly
5:03 am
30% of his income. answering his critics, romney answered this allegation. >> the word is out he hasn't paid any taxes for ten years. >> reporter: romney released a 0 year summary by the accounting firm price waterhouse cooper saying romney owed and paid taxes every year. >> what an honor to be here with you. >> reporter: the tax returns were released while romney was campaigning. romney struggled to get his message back on the economy. he's been on the defensive all week over comments he made in a secretly recorded may fundraiser when he said 47% of americans who don't may federal income taxes are government dependents. that fueled criticism of his campaign, but in an interview with scott pelley for "60 minutes," romney said the buck stops with him. >> that was me. that wasn't the campaign. i've got a very effective campaign. doing a very good job. but not everything i say is
5:04 am
elegant. and i want to make it very clear, i want to help 100% of the american people. >> reporter: now paul ryan had a tough time yesterday. he was booed at the aarp convention in new orleans when he said a romney administration would repeel the president's health care reform act as a way of saving medicare. >> thank you, jan. let's take a closer look at campaign 2012 now. for that we turn to john dickerson who is in our washington bureau. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning. >> to start with, why release the tax returns now? pretty rough week for the romney campaign. were they trying to get this out waste? >> yes. he had to do it. the clock is ticking on this race. this has been a terrible week. why not just put all your bad news in one week, turn the page next monday. >> it is bad news for the romney campaign or what's the headline coming out of this? >> you know, you're right bad news wasn't the right phrase. it's been an issue the democrats
5:05 am
have been trying to stick him with and they keep bringing it up and when it's a slow day they can go back to this. this is an effort to take it off the table. the headline is, depends who you are, if it's deposition he only released one year and didn't release everything to his first passbook as a child. the republican news coming out of this political news is that he spent millions of dollars on charities and he has his whole life. one of the i wanting things he paid a higher tax rate than was necessary in order to conform with a promise he made on the campaign trail that he would never pay a rate lower than 13%. >> the romney campaign spent most of the week trying to get beyond the 47% remark he made in that speech to donors or potential donors. have they moved past it? paul ryan got booed yesterday. are they making ground here? >> no. in states where they are stabilizing things and they tried a couple of things to put the president on the defensive.
5:06 am
this tax story, you know, getting it out of the way that takes another day. the challenge here for the campaign, each day that goes by is to try to seize the news cycle, get back on track and they haven't done that yet. next week governor romney will start with a bus tour in ohio as they hope will kind of, again, turn the page, get back on his message which is the my and he's a better one to improve it. >> early voting is starting now in several states. cbs estimates 44 million, a third of all the ballots cast are going to be cast in these next couple of weeks before election. so what is that going to do for the candidates and does it benefit one over the other >> this is an important story. early voting is taking place in a lot of these important battleground states. so what to look for here is the campaigns will go into states to get their voters out, get their votes banked and they can follow and track who has voted in the various areas, they know who is
5:07 am
likely to vote for either democrats or the republicans. and be the point there sue don't have just one shot at them, one election day shot you have a multiple week shot where you can get people to turn out four. you'll see candidate travel pegged to where early voting is starting or where if it's already started the campaign thinks things are going slowly they need to get their team out. if they can get their supporters out they can shift message, shift resources to swing voters in that state or other states all together. >> john dickerson, thanks so much. tomorrow tonight "60 minutes" will devote the entire hour to both candidates for president. steve croft will speak to president obama, scott pelley will talk to mitt romney. demonstrators storm several parliamentary military installations including two belonging to the groups suspected of having attacked the u.s. consulate. kris stevens was killed in that
5:08 am
consulate. elizabeth palmer is in benghazi this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. well it's a quiet morning in benghazi but that's an uneasy quiet after this citizens protest against the parra military overnight turned into a violent showdown. it started as a simple protest. the people of benghazi coming together to send a message to the armed groups who control their city, and who attacked america's consulate ten days ago killing ambassador chris stevens. the message is we had enough. overhead libya's military showed support for the crowd. things remained peaceful until after dark when core groups of protesters decided to enforce their message. they besieged several of the militia bases that dot the city and pushed them out. then they got into their cars and headed out to the suburbs to the main parra military base and
5:09 am
that's when things got ugly. in the case of forced entry, looting and the militia fighters melting away into the night there was shooting in all directions. there were casualties, that much is clear but we still don't know how many were wounded or killed. now we just learned that that base that was stormed may in fact have been the official libyan military base and arms depot. that shows you the level of confusion here. in a situation like that the confusion can very easily turn into widespread fighting once again. >> elizabeth palmer, thank you. the protests over that anti-muslim film go unabated more than after a week they began. this morning several people were injured in bangladesh when police and muslims clashed. on friday 19 people were killed in pakistan. also on friday rallies were held in 12 cities around the world.
5:10 am
joining us now is bobby ghosh. he wrote the cover story on last week's attack in libya. first it's been 12 days now since that attack. why is this still going on at this degree? >> good question. it's just that this is not spontaneous violence. groups that are involved, that organized the violence and brought it out into the streets and what we saw in pakistan overnight where 25 people were killed and violence, people coming late to these protests. last week it was mostly in the arab world. this week there's a sense in other parts of the muslim world more outrage. we're seeing that played out particularly in pakistan. >> pakistan should be one of our biggest allies in that portion of the world. is that a big concern and how big should it be. >> it's a concern for the obama administration, not just pakistan but in so many other countries where we expect that
5:11 am
the arab spring would bring, has brought democracy and that would make thing easier for foreign policy. it's made things more complicated. the problem sue have a weak government and different political groups that want to go out in the street and challenge their own government and they use a movie like this as an excuse to get out there and do this. >> something that's provocative. helps them provoke a demonstration. >> that's right. >> the state department has spent money here trying to do damage control, they put out some ads, $70,000 they spent. president obama appeared in one, hillary clinton as well. in your view is that a waste of time and money. >> because it's coming so late in the conversation, absolutely it's a waste of time and money. this is not is going to work when you react to violence that's already taken place in the street. what the state department needs to do, what the administration needs do is to be part of the conversation all the time. pakistanis -- >> how do you do that? >> there are many ways of
5:12 am
communicating and there's large budgets the state department has at their disposal. pakistanis shouldn't hear just from the obama administration after something like this has taken place. the united states is spending billions of dollars in aid in pakistan. pakistanis should be hearing about that pretty often, about all the good work that the united states does. when the pakistani receives something directly or indirectly that comes from american aid they should know about it and quite often they don't. so, yes, you want to do damage control. i understand the urge to do damage control but too little too late. >> then what for u.s. interests in the middle east >> get in the conversation. there are lessons to be learned. the main lesson is you can't allow extremists in any society ours as well as theirs to dictate the conversation. we keep saying where are the muslim moderates and why don't they speak up. some of the responsibility falls on us as well.
5:13 am
we have to be part of the conversation and they have to hear from us all the time. >> here in new york a man is in critical condition after he was mauled by a tiger at the bronx zoo. it happened on friday after the man lead from a monorail and landed in the tiger's pen. jim axelrod reports. >> reporter: it was a typical friday afternoon at the bronx zoo. a 25-year-old visitor to the park identified as david was riding mojo -- monorail when he climbed over the fence. >> he made a deliberate effort. he jumped from the car. >> reporter: he landed in a tiger exhibit and was attacked. fire extinguishers were used to scare the tiger off. >> he was totally cognizant, followed their instructions. >> earlier this week he post ad
5:14 am
series of photos of tigers and other wildlife. one with a quote we have more to fear from other people than from animals. he suffered puncture wounds to his back and broken bones and brought to a local hospital in critical condition. the tiger will be put back on display. >> the tiger did nothing wrong. did nothing wrong at all. >> despite the incident the zoo's direct orcalled at it good day because the ti gear is still alive. the victim is still alive. the staff responded exactly as it was trained to do. for cbs "this morning" saturday, i'm jim axelrod. >> become a global ritual, the new iphone hit the stores and the lines formed around the block. michelle miller is here with the latest with the i frenzy. >> apple stock close up $1.39 on friday finishing at $709 on the new york stock exchange.
5:15 am
good news for the company, perhaps better news for the nation's economy. the lines wrapped around apple stores worldwide. smartphone junkies anxious to be among the first be among the new iphone 5 shelled out cold hard cash. market watchers say it could fwuft economy by $3.2 billion. >> iphone 5 bumped the gdp by half a percentage point which is incredible. no other single product notified needle. >> reporter: pre-orders for the phone hit 2 million shattering records for the previous model. estimates for sales this weekend have hit 10 million. >> this is what people have been waiting for. 4g connection which is faster. >> reporter: but like previous generations, the iphone 5 is not
5:16 am
perfect. >> they booted off google map and put in their own map. it's not complete. a lot of errors. you got roads on the water. kind of a mess. >> reporter: this week competitors like market leader samsung tried to expose any chunk in apple's armor. it launched a series of commercial mocking the iphone frenzy. >> is that a samsung? >> it is. it's pretty cool. >> coolest phone anywhere else. the other companies are trying to fight back. >> reporter: bottom line, everyone from chip makers, accessory manufacturers, and telephone companies are sure to benefit from the rising tide of iphone sales. if their stocks go up in value, if you always say, rebecca that's also good news for anyone with a 401(k) -- >> that's what we like. >> thanks. american airlines is
5:17 am
apologizing to its special customers for extensive delays and the 300 flights already cancelled this week alone. the airline officials told advantage club members the reason delays are due to the increase in maintenance writeups by our pilots many right at the time of departure. our maintenance teams are responding appropriately to such reports which may cause interruptions in our schedules. american said it plans to cancel up to 2% of its flights through october and blames the pilots union for calling in sick. the union says there's no organized sick out or work slow down and joining us now is a travel reporter for "usa today." great to have you with us. so what is this? how is this going to turn out for american airline and for the passengers who are flying it? >> right. that's the big question everyone wants to know. this whole situation has started, there's no love lost between frankly any of the front line worker groups at american and management. and the pilots are the most upset. it start when american voided
5:18 am
their collective bargaining contract. the bankruptcy and pilots are not happy about it. now whether what's happening now is in response to that is it depends on who you believe. so, you know, i think it's really interesting. now for passengers, you say 2% of the schedule, 300 flights a week it sounds like a lot. that means two of every 100 flights. the chances it might affect your flight small. but if you're connecting to thrown and you need to be there for a wedding or something and you can't reschedule it's significant. >> what are the issues that are actually dividing the ownership and the pilots at this point? >> right now it's just, the pilots want new management. i talked to the pilots union yesterday and a spokesman said, they listened to all of their complaints. so what makes this better? the answer is a merger with u.s. airways which is what they've thrown their weight behind. they dislike the management at american and have for a long time. i don't know that they can mend the relations and they are
5:19 am
pushing a merger with u.s. airways. >> u.s. airways came to them in the beginning when american went bankrupt and said hey let's make a deal because they knew they had to have the pilots on board. happens for people who do have their flight cancelled? >> american, i think is starting to recognize both the actual problems for passengers and the whole pr mess right now. so they are allowing people to basically, they are giving refunds if your flight is cancelled more than two hours and now lowered it to one hour. you get your money back if you don't fly. >> can you fly another snarl >> you can fly earlier on stand by. if your flight is impacted they will do their best to put you on another airline. the other airline flights are full. party of three or four people there's only so much you can do. >> holiday season is coming up. should you book american? >> think again the chances are small but if you need to be somewhere and you can't reschedule can't get there late it's something to consider.
5:20 am
>> all right. thank you so much. capitol hill resembles a ghost town this morning. congress went home friday so members can campaign for the november 6th election. the earliest pre-election getaway in 52 years. democrats and republicans could not resist sniping at each other. democrats gathered on the capitol steps to complain they were only in session for eight days since they returned from summer vacation. >> dry lightning is expected today in oregon and washington sparking fears that even more fires could be ignited in a region battling nearly a dozen wildfires. thousands of firefighters have been working for weeks trying to contain the blazes. at least one firefighter had been killed battling the fires in washington. the fires have burned at least 180 square miles in washington and oregon. space shuttle "endeavour" is
5:21 am
in los angeles for retirement. "endeavour" arrived on friday on top of a 747 jet. it will be moved on a flat bed truck to a museum in a few weeks. "endeavour" orbited the earth 25 times before nasa retired it and the entire space shuttle fleet last year. >> if you need an example of the perils of facebook, riot police were out in force in one small dutch town friday night to control about 30,000 people who showed up after receiving a facebook invitation to a 16-year-old girl's birthday party. reports say that she failed to mark the invitation private. it went viral and police were forced to move the girl and her family to an undisclosed location. come to my birthday party, sweet 16. >> who goes to a birr day party for somebody they don't know. i don't know. it's 21 past the hour. >> hey my parents are going out of town. let me show you guys what we

♪ millions of baby boomers are heading into retirement and some are fining out that it is harder to dothan expected. our senior financial adviser came up with a clever idea. why not practice your retirement so you're fully prepared when the time comes. she's here to explain. great to have you with us. good morning. what is practicing retirement? >> practicing retirement is first and foremost about protecting your 60s. making sure that you enjoy every year of that decade. so how are you going to do that if you're behind either financially or emotionally you're not ready to retire. so practice retirement is all about starting to play, starting to retire before you stop working. >> you do both at once?
5:41 am
>> you do both at once. >> you have to have significant savings already to do this. >> it helps if you saved four to eight times your salary by the time you're 60. that's ideal. why? then through the decade of your 60s you will be able to replace ultimately 75% or so of your salary. >> part of your idea is you divert funds that would have gone into your 401(k) to spending on life in the 60s. the question then becomes, those what happens if the market tanks, if you god forbid lose your job or get sick. >> well, if the market tanks you're still going to have social security on your side. social security does not depend on market conditions. social security goes up every year you wait by about 7% to 8%. >> which is one reason in addition to the market and job market why people are waiting longer and longer to retire. >> why people ought to wake up when it comes to taking social security.
5:42 am
if that's the kind of boost you get for every year you wait you ought to think seriously about when you take it. >> it's worth it. seems kind of counter intuitive to spend this money before you retire, right? >> you're putting time on your side is really what you're doing. it's not about the spending, it's about the time. when you give yourself time for the nest egg that you did accumulate to continue to compound and potentially grow, depending on how the markets do, and you're waiting to take your social security, which is going up by about 8% every year that you wait plus inflation. so putting those two together and then thinking about the fact that contributions don't have the same impact if they don't have time compound. >> what about catch up contributions? you hear conventional wisdom is if you're not saving enough for retirement over multiple years then once you get into your 60s that's the time to do contribution catchups in your

5:48 am
in 39 state will be obese by 2030. is there a way to control your food cravings. joining us from chicago is dr. daniel ahen an award-winning psychologist author of "use your brain to change your age." first of all why do we get these cravings to begin with? >> initially they were to help us crave thing we needed. but that was a long time ago. food has been hijacked by flavorists that they know how to put together certain combinations of fat, sugar and salt to actually work on the morphine centers of your brain and they can be totally addictive if you are not careful. >> for the people who are capable of turning down cravings, is it that they have fewer of them or is their brain programmed differently or what is it about these people who, for example, go carb less or don't eat saturated fats that
5:49 am
differ from somebody like me who does eat them and craves them. >> you just talked about obesity. a more a person's weight goes up their pleasure centers go down. so if you don't become vigilante on what you actually put in your body they can really get away from you and get out of control. >> so how do we actually battle these cravings. what are we supposed to do? >> okay. a couple of things that are really important and it starts by getting at least seven hours of sleep at night. people who don't get that much have lower blood flow to their brain, which means they are going to make more bad decisions. you start the day with breakfast, but have some protein in the morning because what protein does is it helps balance your blood sugar throughout the day. you also, people think of artificial sweeteners as free. but what we've seen is they actually activate cravings, and in studies rats who were given
5:50 am
artificial sweeteners versus sugar actually gained more weight. there's also some supplements, green tea, chromium can be helpful. but the most important thing if people actually stop using foods that trigger their cravings so think of sugar and pastries is stop using things that trigger them. >> you'll grow out of enjoying them. as far as men and women go, do they crave differently? >> they do. we just did a study in comparing the brains of 10,000 males and females and female brains are just much busier, much more active. they are going after sweets more than men because we find that raises the chemical called serotonin. >> if you deny yourself cravings
5:51 am
for long enough will eventually they disappear? >> you know, sometimes it actually happens very fast. in as little as three or four days. if you start, you know, getting rid of the bad food in your diet, is your taste buds begin to come back and you stop craving or thinking about food. what's really crazy is, you know, i love my grandchildren long for them. but food cravings actually get into the same part of the brain so people begin to long for things like chocolate or blueberry muffins. and just because ate blueberry muffin, we know blueberries are good for the brain, blueberry muffins are not good for the pran. people lie to themselves all the time. >> i figured that out. thank you for being with us this morning. >> kind of like carrot cake. snowboard get your carrots in there. >> coming up next why you might want to change your atm pin

hour. we begin with new protests over that anti-muslim film. thousands took to streets peacefully today in nigeria. in bangladesh protesters clashed with police. rallies were held in 12 cities around the world ned. in pack tan 19 people were killed on friday. mark phillips reports. >> reporter: pakistani officials had tried to contain the anger by declaring a national holiday and what they called a day of love for the prophet. it didn't work. violent crowds rampaged through many of the country's cities. police used traditional riot control measures and some unconventional ones, shutting down the cell phone network in places to foil the organization of the protest. again it didn't work. the united states put out tv ads saying the government had nothing to do with film that had caused such offense but popular outrage and the opportunity for some interest groups to manipulate it left as many as 20 people dead. the anger over the film spread
6:02 am
through much of the islamic world although it was generally less violence. anticipated protest over another issue the publishing in a satirical french magazine in cartoons over prophet muhammed was limited. but schools and sbeembassies we closed and stay closed until the anger sub sides. >> in 1989 salman rushdie published the "satanic verses." he went into hiding for nearly a decade. >> 23 years later as new violent protests rage throughout the middle east as result of perceived insults rushdie's name has popped up again. his new book is a memoir. it tells the story of his life as a marked man. good morning. in 1989 when the ayatollah
6:03 am
khomeni condemned you to death did you understand immediately what was happening? >> pretty quickly. i did not -- initially we had a little confusion. we didn't know if it was rhetoric or something farther backed up with actual force but the trouble with khomeni's regime is they had professional killers who did this, you know who killed members of the opposition and so on and even in europe. so it became very clear very quickly that it was a real threat. >> you essentially go into hiding then for nearly a decade living like a prisoner. what was that like? >> just bizarre for anyone, any individual let alone a writer to be plunged into a spy novel. i was surrounded by secret policemen with guns and being taken to a james bond building on the river. to meet with intelligence officers. i was being told virtually about
6:04 am
assassination squauds ds enteri the country. happily now at this end of the story, it gives me a story to tell. the back end of the story it was no fun. >> you were told you couldn't go home, right by the british police, the special branch? >> yes. >> they basically considered you to be in more danger than anyone in the country except the queen. >> yeah. it was supposed to be the most dangerous protection. i find out afterwards that these people became my friends that in scotland yard this was considered to be the sexiest protection. the people who were doing this were kind of looked up toby their fellow officers. that was their biggest job. >> a lot of people at the time, he's selling books, living large, living this glamorous lifestyle. hat you lay out in this book is that there were very outrageous incidents things that would be hard for anyone to imagine a
6:05 am
living person going through. >> i agree. one of my worries was that if you look at it from the outside it sometimes looked glamorous. you show up in places in a jaguar and pathways are cleared. and people think who is he. why does he deserve that. that's human nature. funny thing from my side of the fence it was like jail. like i spent ten years without the keys to my front door in my pocket. not allowed to walk out the door without police. not allowed to drive my own car. not allowed to see my children or my friends without -- all kinds of arrangements being made. simplest things in the world became a problematic. going to the movies, big problem. >> in 1989 i was actually caught in pakistan, in islamabad in the middle of a demonstration over your book in which the police ended up shooting rubber bullets and tear gas at the massive
6:06 am
crowd. nobody it appeared had read your book. >> one of the things that's bizarre about those early demonstrations -- the book wasn't there. it wasn't there to read. but they didn't know who i was. they had just been aimed in the way that can happen in india and pakistan that politicians and religious leaders can put a mob on the street by snapping their fingers and say go. >> which brings us to present times where we see similar thing playing out in the streets throughout the arab world. i wonder what you think about this gentleman, this individual who created the film that has sparked the riots that we're seeing play out now. >> i think it's a serious function of art to ask difficult questions and make people have conversations that they don't want to have. that one thing. this film which clearly is sort of a piece of garbage was clearly made in order to upset people. and i think he got what he wanted in spades. so we're in this strange
6:07 am
situation where on the one hand we have to defend his right to free speech because that's a right we cherish and rightly so. but we don't have to approve of him. >> is the criticism you see in the streets throughout the arab world do you believe that's warranted? >> no. what's happened in a lot of the western world, one of the things i try to say in my book that my incident was a precursor to this. a lot of things we see is a growth of outrage industry. you know, that there are people in western countries whose job it is to find things that they can use to inflame protests of this kind which obviously have a broader anti-western, anti-american purpose. not just about the film. when you have the head of hezbollah saying this film was the work of u.s. intelligence, you know, you see that what's intend here is a larger as the american project is not about the film any more. >> your intention was never to insult or even provoke anyone. >> no. i think lots and lots of people
